A strong storm system that brought blizzard conditions to the North, heavy rain across the Carolinas and tornadoes in the Southeast brought another round of snow to the North Carolina mountains on Wednesday night.
However, it also brought strong, gusty winds that took down trees and power lines, causing outages to hundreds and dangerous conditions on the roadways.
A High Wind Warning remained in effect through Thursday morning, as wind gusts of over 70 mph persisted through the first half of the day.
Below freezing temperatures caused ice on the roadways and blowing snow reduced visibility.
The system also triggered an EF-1 tornado in Cartaret county North of Beaufort. The National Weather Service estimates the tornado produced wind speeds of 90 mph.
In Charlotte, a new record was set for daily rainfall when 1.72 inches fell, bringing the rainfall deficit to less than eight inches. Another round of rain could bring further drought relief this weekend.
